VERY Poorly Made
Unfortunately, this document is almost illegible. It was either composed by a computer attempting to convert to or from an unknown font or manually typed by someone with absolutely no grasp of the English alphabet. Example:
Building spelled "BuBld8ng"
Grinding is "Grimdeig"
"2®lo3 Terms deljied im otlier codes" means 2003 terms detailed in other codes (?)
Liquified Petroleum spelled "Liqeefedl peHroknam"
This isn't even close to the extent of it, many sentences are completely intelligible. This mess makes it impossible to find or understand any relevant information, as even the "FIND" feature on most browsers cannot find nonsense words. As the document continues, it just gets worse and worse. I transcribe for a living and think this is appalling, not only to produce such garbage, but to accept it as a legitimate document. Shame. If the error was computer related, this document should have been proofread and fixed before posting. It is of no help to anyone, and does nothing but induce a headache!

document accessibility via this archive
I find it very difficult to read the Connecticut building code through your user interface. Have you tried it? It really seems like the user interface of this archive resource makes it too difficult to use though it appears that a tremendous amount of documents and energy have been put into it. The right way to put a resource like the Connecticut building code onto the web can be found at http://www.ct.gov/dps/lib/dps/office_of_state_building_inspector_files/2005_state_building_code.pdf
